Action Plan for the Deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems in Europe

The European Commission has launched this ITS Action Plan in 2008 to accelerate and coordinate the deployment of ITS in road transport, including interfaces with other transport modes. Six priority areas for action are outlined in the Plan, the areas being:

  1. Optimal use of road, traffic and travel data;
  2. Continuity of traffic and freight management ITS services on European transport corridors and in conurbations;
  3. Road safety and security;
  4. Integration of the vehicle into the transport infrastructure;
  5. Data security and protection and liability issues; and
  6. European ITS cooperation and coordination.

For each area specific actions have been formulated including a timeline.
